Customer Question

I have a Pixma iP7250 wireless printer. the automatic paper support arm that pops out seems to be unclipped internally - it swings out past the 90 degrees normal stop position and does not fold itself up when you close the door. Any suggestions - is it fixable?

VanMagnus Systems :

Hello and good day to you...

VanMagnus Systems :

I am looking at the Service Manual for your Printer.

VanMagnus Systems :

In your case Sir or Ma'am it would be better to take it to a local repair shop than to attempt the repair your self.

VanMagnus Systems :

Chime in when ready.

VanMagnus Systems :

Hi.

Customer:

Hello. I am assuming the natural force of the door opening has dislocated or perhaps broken something inside. Is there any way to access the mechanism in side the door, or is it all factory sealed. I cannot see any screws or clip positions. Is there a particular type of repair shop that would be best placed to help?

VanMagnus Systems :

Yes there is..

VanMagnus Systems :

Depending upon where you are in jolly Olde England, just a Cannon repair shop. What is the closest major city near you?

Customer:

Epsom, Surrey (main town). Otherwise perhaps Kingston or London

VanMagnus Systems :

Forgive the question, but do you see much owl's near you??? A h

VanMagnus Systems :

Harry Potter reference.

Customer:

?

Customer:

Haven't read HP

Customer:

We have song birds and occasional woodpeckers

VanMagnus Systems :

Ok...

VanMagnus Systems :

Lol..

VanMagnus Systems :

Hold on please...

Customer:

Hmmm. None of them very local. Will ask around. Thank you for trying.

Customer:

Rating because unable to provide a fix directly.

VanMagnus Systems :

Poor Rating, why is that???

VanMagnus Systems :

http://www.printerrepair.co.uk/surrey.htm

VanMagnus Systems :

Closer to you in Surrey...

VanMagnus Systems :

Lastly there is: http://www.surrey-printer-repairs.co.uk/

VanMagnus Systems :

Also in Surrey.

VanMagnus Systems :

If I may point this out, it us broken. You do not have the skills or tools to effect repairs.

VanMagnus Systems :

My only option is to refer you to a local repair shop. Also your question asked for suggestions. I have answered your question.

VanMagnus Systems :

As per your question. The repair should take less than 10 minutes and cost less than £20.00 if not free.

Customer:

That's much more useful. Re my skills and tools etc, I have been taking computers apart and rebuilding them for over 25 years, although printers are always more difficult and becoming more so. Will upgrade the rating for you, for your kind efforts.
